• Silk Blooms by W/Field Workshop

    Silk Bloom is a series of sculptural forms based on the geometries and undulations of a flower bouquet and the graphic patterns of jockey silks. The forms bend, wrap and fold in a similar language to paper origami construction methods. The vivid patterning is also meant to be evocative of the wayfinding symbols of trails and roadways and bold enough to stand out in the urban landscape and be noticed, pondered and remembered by car travelers en route to the races. Designed by W/Field Workshop. Consultation and Fabrication by Rash, llc. Funded by LexArts and the City of Lexington.
